Demand from building control officials for structural calculations - even for very simple projects - means that today's architects must have a thorough understanding of everyday structural concepts. Structures for Architects satisfies the need for a basic introduction to the structural problems encountered by the architect, surveyor and builder. This third edition reflects advances in recent techniques and refers to current Building Regulations and Codes of Practice. Students of architecture, building and surveying at degree, diploma or professional (RIBA, RICS, CIOB) examination level will find this book a valuable course text. Professionals in these fields who must perform structural calculations to satisfy building control authorities will also find it a useful handbook.

Structure for Architects: A Case Study in Steel, Wood, and Reinforced Concrete Design is a sequel to the authors’ first text, Structure for Architects: A Primer, emphasizing the conceptual understanding of structural design in simple language and terms. This book focuses on structural principles applied to the design of typical structural members—a beam, a girder, and a column—in a diagrammatic frame building. Through the application of a single Case Study across three key materials, the book illustrates the theory, principles, and process of structural design. The Case Study progresses step-by-step for each material, from determining tributary areas and loads through a member's selection and design. The book addresses the frequent disparity between the way architects and engineers perceive and process information, with engineers focusing on technical aspects and architects focusing on visual concepts. Structure for Architects: A Case Study in Steel, Wood, and Reinforced Concrete Design presents readers with an understanding of fundamental engineering principles through a uniquely thematic Case Study. Focusing on the conceptual understanding of structural design, this book will be of interest to architecture students and professionals looking to understand the application of structural principles in relation to steel, wood, and concrete design.

Structure As Architecture provides readers with an accessible insight into the relationship between structure and architecture, focusing on the design principles that relate to both fields. Over one hundred case studies of contemporary buildings from countries across the globe including the UK, the US, France, Germany, Spain, Hong Kong and Australia are interspersed throughout the book. The author has visited and photographed each of these examples and analyzed them to show how structure plays a significant architectural role, as well as bearing loads. This is a highly illustrated sourcebook, providing a new insight into the role of structure, and discussing the point where the technical and the aesthetic meet to create the discipline of 'architecture'. * Presents a comprehensive analysis of how building structure contributes to architecture * Connects architectural design ideas and structure in the context of contemporary architecture, materials and structure * Highly illustrated, providing a sourcebook of architectural and engineering design ideas

This is the first fully comprehensive survey and analysis of masted structures and covers examples that have evolved during the past three decades. Masted Structures are one of the most interesting developments in post-war architecture resulting from a combination of technology, structural engineering theory and a collaboration between architects and engineers. This is an essential guide for architects to the structural and constructional implications of masted forms in relation to space enclosure, patterns of loading and use of differing materials and techniques. This useful volume will enable architects and engineers to understand the origins, development and nature of masted structures and will provide a stimulating basis for future design.

Seismic Design for Architects shows how structural requirements for seismic resistance can become an integral part of the design process. Structural integrity does not have to be at the expense of innovative, high standard design in seismically active zones. * By emphasizing design and discussing key concepts with accompanying visual material, architects are given the background knowledge and practical tools needed to deal with aspects of seismic design at all stages of the design process * Seismic codes from several continents are drawn upon to give a global context of seismic design * Extensively illustrated with diagrams and photographs * A non-mathematical approach focuses upon the principles and practice of seismic resistant design to enable readers to grasp the concepts and then readily apply them to their building designs Seismic Design for Architects is a comprehensive, practical reference work and text book for students of architecture, building science, architectural and civil engineering, and professional architects and structural engineers.

Exposed structure combines beauty, functionality, and economy in high-rise buildings, sports facilities, schools, atriums, garages, industrial plants, and rail and air terminals all over the world. This definitive sourcebook brings together for the first time in a single volume the processes, concepts, and materials needed for exposed structure. Filled with photographs and drawings of award-winning buildings, it explores the decision-making process as experienced by nineteen leading designers. Also, it highlights the characteristics of exposed structure when designing for durability and economy. The introduction identifies exposed structure in many well-known contemporary buildings, and recent innovations in structural systems and architectural forms as well as the historical development are explained. Readers will find unique conversations with top architects, as they explore their choice to expose structure or why they decline to expose structure. Included are memorable comments by Edward Larrabee Barnes ... John M.Y. Lee ... Alfredo De Vido ... James Ingo Freed ... Gyo Obata ... Cesar Pelli ... Kevin Roche ... Richard Rogers ... and Bernard Tschumi. In addition, prominent structural engineers discuss in lively detail how they have worked out the politics, the process, and the technical challenges of exposing structure. Showcased are the innovative ideas of Eli Cohen ... Vincent DeSimone ... Eugene J. Fasullo ... Hal Iyengar ... William LeMessurier ... Matthys Levy ... Walter P. Moore ... Peter Rice ... Leslie E. Robertson ... and Loring A. Wyllie. Exposed Structure in Building Design provides technical summaries and case studies of design problems (and solutions) of exposed concrete, steel, and wood structures. Aluminum and other materials are discussed, too. There is up-to-date coverage of the latest materials and structural systems, of details to handle temperature differentials, and of designs to resist corrosion, fracture, and fire. This comprehensive book also contains chapters dedicated to long-span structures (such as roofed arenas and convention halls) and to the special design and maintenance requirements of parking garages. With its wide-ranging treatment of all types of exposed structure, its informative conversations with architects and engineers, and its extensive design and construction guidance, Exposed Structure in Building Design is an essential sourcebook for architects, engineers, owners, developers, contractors, and others interested in building design.

The comprehensive reference on the basics of structural analysisand design, now updated with the latest considerations of buildingtechnology Structural design is an essential element of the buildingprocess, yet one of the most difficult to learn. While structuralengineers do the detailed consulting work for a building project,architects need to know enough structural theory and analysis todesign a building. Most texts on structures for architects focusnarrowly on the mathematical analysis of isolated structuralcomponents, yet Building Structures looks at the general conceptswith selected computations to understand the role of the structureas a building subsystem—without the complicatedmathematics. New to this edition is a complete discussion of the LRFD methodof design, supplemented by the ASD method, in addition to: The fundamentals of structural analysis and design forarchitects A glossary, exercise problems, and a companion website andinstructor's manual Material ideally suited for preparing for the ARE exam Profusely illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs,and including new case studies, Building Structures, Third Editionis perfect for nonengineers to understand and visualize structuraldesign.
